Houston-headquartered engineering consulting and software development firm Zentech has been awarded a three-year engineering services contract by Adnoc Drilling, a fully owned subsidiary of Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc) for the UAE firm’s offshore and onshore drilling rigs.

Under the scope of the contract, the American firm will provide the engineering services including structural, marine, mechanical, and electrical engineering, in addition to naval architecture.

In a statement, area manager for UAE operations at Zentech, Ajai Peter, said: “On behalf of our chief executive officer, Ramesh Maini, and our entire company, we are delighted with this award as a recognition of our continued service, quality and commitment to Adnoc Drilling and to the offshore industry around the world.

The Texas-based firm said the latest engineering contract was in line with existing standardisation that Adnoc Drilling has implemented with the use of Zentech’s Load and Stability Programme for Jackups, also called Losjack, which has been used for its offshore fleet's day-to-day operations.
